Before Optimus Prime was, KARR was. And in 1982 the evil twin prototype of KITT in the TV series called Knight Rider, was voiced by actor Peter Cullen.

Knight Rider fan site Knight Rider Online is now reporting on their site that the actor best know for giving voice to the original Optimus Prime as well as the current movie Optimus Prime, will reprise his role as KARR in the new series of Knight Rider. The episode is called Knight To King's Pawn and will air on NBC on January 21st.

The official synopsis can also be found on their site. Beware before reading the following text, as they do contain spoilers for upcoming episodes, which will resume to air on December 31st.

The following has been taken directly from the synopsis page from http://www.knightrideronline.com

TIME TO FIGHT BACK--Sarah is not coping well with her father's death and decides to leave town. Concerned, Mike goes looking for her and in return gets the answers he has been searching for about his past. Meanwhile, the NSA has decided to dismantle the SSC now that Dr. Graiman is dead and they can then move forward with KITT's nemesis KARR. With Torres' permission they take out KITT's chip that contains his personality and memories and place it in KARR. Upset by what has happened, Mike, Sarah, Billy and Zoe devise a plan to find where KITT has been taken and get him up and running and destroy the evil KARR once and for all.

The movies website Movie Web recently caught up with actor Tyrese Gibson, better known as sgt. Epps from the Michael Bay Transformers movies. The actor sat down and talked about his role in the upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

"Yes, my character has been upgraded to Master Sergeant Epps. I am the top dog in the air force. I am a master sergeant. I am bringing on way more air strikes. Michael Bay really beefed up my presence in this sequel. I was really happy about that. Just being on the set with all of my cast members really made me feel like we'd created a family union. I think we created something that is really special. The fans out there really showed up and made us feel appreciated for what we did. It felt good to be working on something that the world is waiting to see".

"No. I can't. I'm sorry. It's all secrets. Its way more robots. There are a whole bunch of new robots that the world is going to be introduced to. There is going to be way more action sequences. All of the stuff that goes on is really insane. What I love the most? I can purposely say this. I have never done nothing in my life, or been a part of anything in my life, where I feel like ever man, woman, and child in the world is going to see something that I've been in. And it's a lot of pressure. It is something...I don't know. It's just a lot of pressure. It's like someone telling you that, while it might be a messed up comparison, a tsunami is going to hit in seven months. And you can see the tsunami before it comes. How do you prepare for that? That's how I look at Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. It is just so big, and just so gargantuan. It is just really amazing. I am glad to be a part of it. Michael Bay is amazing. Spielberg, Shia, Josh, Megan. Also, you guys should be looking out for Matthew Marsden. He is a British actor. He was the head of the UK forces that are tied into the film. It is going to be pretty crazy. I want to leave you with this fan hotline number, because I am so hands on. I communicate with my fans directly. I have a number, and it's free. I am not making any money on it. Nor are the fans charged for calling. The phone number is (818) 287-8968. It is just full throttle communications with the fans. They can reach out and make whatever suggestions they want to make. Or whatever. I am always looking to better myself in all areas".

New information has just been posted regarding some upcoming Transformers Fan Conventions that will be held globally. It seems that five different events: Autocon, DairyCon, CyberCon, DBCTF and Gamer's Reunion have come together to offer either the same set of exclusives or a combined exclusive figure:

Dairycon, Cybcon, Dutchbotcon, and Gamers Reunion have teamed up to bring you an exclusive item for 2009. The year 2009 marks a very special occasion for fans of their fav toyline, and it is in this spirit that the original team (along with some new blood) comes together again. The identity of this item remains a secret... for now :-) Check back soon for updates! You won't be disappointed!



An image of a blacked out figure has been posted on a conjoined site for the four events.

These conventions are happy to be for fans, by fans :-) And together, we can team-up to bring you something special! Representatives from each convention are part of a larger conglomerate called Autocon. For more information on the history of Autocon-exclusives, click here!

More information on this new turn of events can be seen here.



UPDATE: Seibertron.com member Trikeboy has just gave us a clue as to who this exclusive figure may be:

It appears to be the mold of Battle Unicron (or Magna Stampede) of the Beast Machines line. More information on this exclusive will be posted as it becomes available.

Seibertron.com member Ultra Computron has just informed us of some great news regarding the highly anticipated Spotlight: Jazz Comic book that is in the works. Here's what he had to share:


WARNING. Some plot SPOILERS for Spotlight Jazz.




















The March solicitations are up for IDW's March books. In them you will find some BIG (or should I say, "GIANORMOUS") news for anyone that's a fan of TRANSFORMERS: Mosaic. :D




Transformers Spotlight: Jazz
Josh van Reyk & Shaun Knowler (w) • E.J. Su (a) • Su, Andrew Griffith (c)

Stranded, outgunned and outnumbered, AUTOBOT special operative JAZZ will need every bit of his training if he is going to make it out of this one alive! As things go from bad to utterly hopeless, what chance do JAZZ and his (unwilling) compatriot have, when they’re being tracked by the DECEPTICONS’ most ruthless warriors – THE PREDACONS?



Did you catch those writers? Congrats Josh and Shaun! (And a special shout out to Mosaic contributor Andrew Griffith for snagging a cover!) Also, on the IDW forums, editor Denton J. Tipton posted this:
..speaking of announcements, the colorist of the cover will also handle the interiors. After doing such a great job on the cover, Priscilla Tramontano has been hired to also do the interiors.

Priscilla has been an assistant for the talented Marcelo Matere, so you know she's got the goods.

A big congratulations as well to TRANSFORMERS: MOSAIC members Josh and Shaun from the Seibertron.com family. It's about time!
